Baby fic once I find the stamina because wow did this one sap all of mine (hurr hurr)
So, uh, I wrote The Goblin Emperor fic.
Summary: “The morning of Csethiro’s wedding found her beating her nerves to death.” Maia and Csethiro, post-book.
Excerpt: He looked like a stone carving come to life, slate grey and absolutely still, she thought one morning as he meditated in the garden. Whatever stone-carver thought to fashion him would have had a wealth of imagination—what else could produce that combination of features, that thin blade of a nose, the sharp cheekbones and the hollows beneath them that waxed and waned with his worries? His mouth was soft, softer than any elf’s, an echo of his goblin heritage, and even softer were his eyes, the color of rain and melancholy, and when they crinkled in the corners as he smiled, she felt like her heart would stop.

Oh God I just wrote a ~7000-word fic about Maia and Csethiro saving the world and making love, not necessarily in that order
Colonialism and imperialism have not settled their debt to us once they have withdrawn their ﬂag and their police force from our territories. For centuries the capitalists have behaved like real war criminals in the underdeveloped world. Deportation, massacres, forced labor, and slavery were the primary methods used by capitalism to increase its gold and diamond reserves, and establish its wealth and power. Not so long ago, Nazism transformed the whole of Europe into a genuine colony. The governments of various European nations demanded reparations and the restitution in money and kind for their stolen treasures. As a result, cultural artifacts, paintings, sculptures, and stained-glass windows were returned to their owners. In the aftermath of the war the Europeans were adamant about one thing: “Germany will pay.” At the opening of the Eichmann trial Mr. Adenauer, on behalf of the German people, once again asked forgiveness from the Jewish people. Mr. Adenauer renewed his country’s commitment to continue paying enormous sums to the state of Israel to compensate for Nazi crimes.
At the same time we are of the opinion that the imperialist states would be making a serious mistake and committing an unspeakable injustice if they were content to withdraw from our soil the military cohorts and the administrative and ﬁnancial services whose job it was to prospect for, extract and ship our wealth to the metropolis. Moral reparation for national independence does not fool us and it doesn’t feed us. The wealth of the imperialist nations is also our wealth. At a universal level, such a statement in no way means we feel implicated in the technical feats or artistic creations of the West. In concrete terms Europe has been bloated out of all proportions by the gold and raw materials from such colonial countries as Latin America, China, and Africa. Today Europe’s tower of opulence faces these continents, for centuries the point of departure of their shipments of diamonds, oil, silk and cotton, timber, and exotic produce to this very same Europe. Europe is literally the creation of the Third World. The riches which are choking it are those plundered from the underdeveloped peoples. The ports of Holland, the docks in Bordeaux and Liverpool owe their importance to the trade and deportation of millions of slaves.
